"Progressives are getting nostalgic for nationalism. . . . Why Nationalism is an important contribution to this growing literature. Yael Tamir elegantly recounts nationalism's virtues."---Peter Spiro, Lawfare
"Free-market libertarians and social democrats both have lots to learn from this measured and thoughtful book."---David Conway, Jewish Chronicle
"Tamir's work makes an important contribution by forcing us to recognize that national feeling, however defined, isn't going away. Her argument is that the resurgence in nationalism derives in part from a reaction against an economic structure whose benefits flow mostly to those at the top, those who have rejected any responsibility for helping their fellow members of the national community. That is an argument progressives can and should incorporate into their presentation. But we can't do that if we reject the very idea of a national community, what Tamir defines as the 'political we.'"---Ian Reifowitz, Daily Kos
"Interesting and provocative. . . . Highly ambitious."---Jonathan Derbyshire, Financial Times
"[Tamir] courageously defends moderate and universal nationalist outlooks, masterfully distinguishes between these and the murky populist wave washing over societies worldwide and endangering the Western democratic order . . . . [
Why Nationalism
] is outstanding in that it combines her background as a political philosopher with her many years of hands-on political experience, something that can't be said of many scholars in the West who are now focusing on these issues."---Shlomo Avineri, Haaretz
